The island and the resort are beautiful and relaxing, meals were great and the staff friendly, outgoing and accomodating. We did our open water beginners dive ticket and the diving was amazing. Don't expect all the mod cons but do expect a beautiful simple relaxing holiday.

The boat trip from the Kadavu airport to the resort set the scene perfectly. We stayed in in one of the ocean bures which provided excellent accommodation. Warm (not hot) water which was all that was needed. Pure drinking water out of the tap, Large double bed with two single beds. Furnished with a touch of class. The real bonus... More

We were made to feel very welcome here. Friendly staff who were most helpful. The bures were well appointed, clean and close to a beautiful white sandy beach. When the sun got too much there was a pool table, table tennis table, library, games, well stocked bar and coffee and tea always available. When we left the farewell was unlike... More

Unplugged from the rest of the planet we were able to enjoy one of the most relaxing holidays. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and comfortable around the place. Nothing was too much trouble.

I love this peaceful place, with the beautiful gardens, fresh homemade food, vegetables and fruits from the garden, fish from the ocean in front. Love the view from my screened Veranda and the long beach walks. The best place for snorkeling ever, for underwater-meetings with colourful fish and turtles being inspired from the corals in hundred different shapes and colours.... More

I was quite stressed when I planned my trip to Fiji. I intended to enjoy connecting with nature. I also unplugged: no computer, phone or internet for 21 days. To say that Papageno served my needs is a colossal understatement. They went above and beyond into otherworldly territory. Seriously. From the fresh fruit plate every morning to the divine homemade... More

In June I went on a Kayak trip around Kadavu. Out of the 3 resort I stayed in, Papageno was my absolute favorite. Beautiful long clean beach. Every morning around 5 am I went bird watching. There are so many different species. The highlight was when I saw a beautiful Parrot in the garden area. I loved the food, the... More
